Writer Class close() method

  • close() method is available in java.io package.
  • close() method is used to the first flush and then close this Writer stream. When we call any of its methods after closing the stream will result an exception.
  • close() method is a non-static method, it is accessible with the class object only and if we try to access the method with the class name then we will get an error.
  • close() method may throw an exception at the time of closing the stream.
    IOException: This exception may throw when getting any input/output error while performing.


    public abstract void close();


  • It does not accept any parameter.

Return value:

The return type of the method is void, it returns nothing.


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of void close() method of Writer

import java.io.*;

public class CloseOfWriter {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        Writer w_stm = null;
        String str = "Java World!!!";

        try {
            // Instantiates Writer
            w_stm = new PrintWriter(System.out);

            // when we call write() method is to write
            // the string to the stream Writer


            // By using close() method is to
            // close the stream
            System.out.println("Writer Stream Closed");
        } catch (Exception ex) {
        } finally {
            // with the help of this block is to
            // free all necessary resources linked
            // with the stream
            if (w_stm != null) {


Java World!!!
Writer Stream Closed
